Well, after much thinking about colors, we finally picked something and got started painting the outside of the house. I absolutely love how it turned out! One detail you can't see from the picture is the bright red front door.
The family has mixed feelings about the color change. I hated the old color and love the new one, so I'm quite happy. My husband doesn't care much one way or the other. Red Chief likes the new color. Tiger Lily keeps telling me she wants the old color back . . . but she does love the red door.
Perhaps I'm a bore for picking out grey (on the outside and also a very light shade inside, too), but I find it soothing to look at and more traditional-looking than the former colors.
